From the director of ‘Leviathan’ which we have also shown in an earlier Club programme. It is a strong drama about a family in crisis and is a deep insight into modern Russian life. It was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s OSCARS and Golden Globes. It can certainly be described as ‘Russian Cinema Noir’ with excellent acting and a powerful story.
“A film that, with chilly precision, dissects the frozen corpse of a hollow society - personal, national and global.”
Mark Kermode, Observer
